Erica Mena may have nailed the whole controversial reality star thing by fighting on TV and numerous Twitter beefs, but evidently that hasn’t ruined her chances of delivering commencement speeches.
According to VH1, the reality star was asked by the class vice president of New York’s Unity Center for Urban Technologies to deliver the commencement speech for the high school’s graduating class this year.
Here’s a short snippet of Erica’s commencement speech:
As you go through life, you’re going to make mistakes, but it’s not the mistake that counts, it’s how you bounce back! I’m not proud at the route I chose, but because of it I can stand before you today and deliver these words of wisdom. Learn from my story and remember life is what you make it. Where you’re from does not determine where you’re going. You are the creator of your destiny.
